I'm Still Burnin'

Doing The Neutron Dance, 8x8, Oil Painting on Hardboard
These two were running away from me at a stoplight. I know, who can imagine that any bird would run away from a crazy woman holding a big, black, boxy thing in front of her face! I caught them mid-stride and all I could see was two crows dancing. Being from the disco era myself, I could hear the Pointer Sisters singing "Neutron Dance" as I was painting. So here they are, just burnin' Doing The Neutron Dance!

Hey, Posh, Look At Me!

Bend It Like Beckham, 8x8, Oil Painting on Hardboard, SOLD
Found these guys in a parking lot eating an apple. The one on the right was rolling it around. I thought it looked like they were playing soccer! So here they are, bending it like Beckham.

This painting is now in the possession of a friend who is moving from Wichita. I will miss her. We have been painting together, off and on, for several years now. Pat, I hope you are enjoying your new home. Please come back to visit!

Work It!

Strut, 8x8, Oil Painting on Hardboard, SOLD
I found this little guy in a parking lot in Wichita, Kansas. Such a confidant crow! He could be working the runway. I have named this painting "Strut" because he is seriously strutting his stuff!

It's getting to be crow time again here in the midwest. I have had to rely on photos taken a few months ago for my painting references. That's not a problem as I have thousands of them! But it's so exciting to find new crow situations. Looking forward to future photo safaris!
